David Cook won American Idol last night.
Since this happened, people have asked me about what my thoughts are, so here they are.
David Cook is a total idiot and a douche. That said, he deserved to win. Not because his brother, terminally ill with cancer, was there but because he simply outperformed.
Archuleta is and will be a major recording star. I think he was a bit too young for the show. Winning Idol is hard. You have to endure the scrutiny and media attention. He was only 17 and I blogged previously about his inexperience in this sort of situation.
But it also goes to show some of the problems with the show. Things are getting boring.
Let's see what next year brings before we make any harsh judgment. Agreed?
